So I received my 1.7 single yesterday. With dynaglide whoopies and ridgeline it comes in at 19 oz. Add 8 ft. tree straps its at 23 oz. I'm still happy with it . This hammock is more for my wife. She likes a lot of support, so I think the 1.7 was still probably the better option for her than the 1.1. I have a lighter DIY 1.5 and I think I'll make a DIY 1.1 and try it out as well.
